A group of ACG Washington Alumni met up on Tuesday March 31 at the ATRIUM, Lobby level, Capital Tower of the Crystal Gateway Marriott, and committed to reaching out to other alumni in the Washington DC area, in order to provide support to ACG interns and study abroad students that come to DC.
The alumni – Alexander Skouras (DEREE ‘08), Liliane Mavridara (DEREE ‘90), Kostas Ferssizidis (DEREE ‘03), Yasmin Paraskeva (DEREE ‘02), Nikos Tsafos (PIERCE ‘99), and Besu Feleke DEREE (’02) met with ACG’s Executive DirectorMary-Irene Triantafillou (DEREE ’89), and discussed ways they could share their experience and knowledge with students, becoming mentors and advocates, and creating possibilities for networking as well as for raising funds to support current programs at ACG, such as DEREE’s study abroad program in DC – and other exciting initiatives.
“Thank you for organizing this event, Constantine Ferssizidis, Store Manager, Vice President at TD Bank said, adding, “I am looking forward to expanding our alumni connections here in the Greater Washington DC area.”
On his part, Besu Feleke (DEREE ’02) noted, “It is wonderful to reconnect with fellow DEREE alumni. I will keep in touch! My motto in life: ‘The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall,’ by Nelson Mandela.”
